Purpose of the course The course aims are orally presentation of own research adapted to different groups and reflection on presentation skills and ability.
Intended learning outcomes After the course the student is expected to be able to:
1. Orally present own research adapted to different target groups.
2. Reflect on presentation skills and ability to adapt to different target groups.
Contents of the course During the course each participant will be given the opportunity to develop practical and theoretical knowledge in: - Communication, perception and learning - Presentation techniques - Rhetoric - Use of different media (such as Posters, Overhead-projector, PowerPoint, Whiteboard)
Teaching and learning activities The course design is based on reflective practice and includes self-directed learning, lectures and literature seminar to process theoretical knowledge, and practical training in presentation skills. Each course participant will perform three oral presentations and receive feedback on content, presentation skills and adaptation towards target group.
Compulsory elements Compulsory sessions are: 1. Oral presentation in a popular science context (video recorded) 2. Oral presentation in a scientific context and observe and give feedback to an oral presentation made by a peer. Absence from the compulsory sessions or assessment seminar can be compensated through supplementary activity.
Examination The assessment consists of two different tasks: 1. Reflective statement based in experience, feedback and research/literature within communication and learning. 1. Oral presentation in a popular scientific context supported by PowerPoint or similar. To pass the course the participant needs to show evidence that they reached the learning outcomes by fulfillment of the assessment criteria.
